I recently got hold of a Diamon supra express 56i PRO modem. I've read the
FAQ, the howtos tand banged my head off it and it stillwon't work. I'm
pretty sure it's not a win modem but their website doesn't mention it for
definite. I'm not sure if there is a definitive test IO can perform.
Anyway, I can't get it to talk to a serial port under Linux. Accorind to
Windows, the IO and IRQ is 0x3e8 and 11 so I did a
setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 11 port 0x3e8 uart 16550
it did that, but a
produces an IO error which I presume means, "I don't work"
Then... in case Windows was messed up, I read the output of /proc/pci and
picked up a different io there 0xeff0 so I used that, but still no go..
I'm at a loss at this poin as to how to get it working. It might be an
interrupt problem because /proc/pci shows up another device at IRQ 11 but
I can't change the IRQ in any way that I can see and it's not a problem
btw, if this is on the archives, I didn't see it. If it's on a HOWTO, it
slipped by be somehow. It is not on any FAQ under diamond that I could
find and grepping through anything I though relevant didn't show up so
hopefully this isn't dumb question 2000
C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot.
C++ makes it harder, but when you do, you blow away your whole leg
